Broadway Clybourne Park Cancelled

Producer Scott Rudin, lead producer on the previously announced Broadway transfer of Bruce Norris' play Clybourne Park, has cancelled the move from Los Angeles to the Walter Kerr Theatre. A spokesman for Boneau/Bryan-Brown, a Broadway publicity firm, has confirmed that "we are no longer involved with Clybourne Park."

According to (whose information comes from The Post), "the play cancellation stemmed from a disagreement between Rudin and playwright Bruce Norris, who began his career as an actor. Norris had been set to play the older brother in Rudin’s forthcoming HBO adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections but abruptly pulled out, saying, 'I don’t like to do pilots.' Rudin responded by cancelling the Broadway transfer of Clybourne Park, now running at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles with its original seven-person cast."
